One of the first aspects of embracing the LHP fully or path of afro magical traditions is the ideology ,that our path requires all body and soul there is no murky half giving , it is in actuality a path that requires all.Destruction of the ego , to push the boundaries of comfort to transgressed enlightened full states ,all.These paths have many causalities but the thing we have to remember as TRUE practitioners working with these energies without fear there can never be any half hearted inbetween , in that as a true practioner we seal a pact for life.None of this is more validly important when working with such spirits as voodoo lwa , it requires if a shrine is set up no matter how roughly a life long pact of devotion to serve such spirits . Unlike Goetic spirits , such spirits can not be silenced and banished on once entering a home .I feel this is a point of this path to be discussed that these spirits can not be employed once for ‘a working’ and once called upon you are even if the pact is not formally sealed in blood making a contract to serve work with such until death and if you are not willing to give all to such or honour such contracts upon your life the consequences can be dire . This is why it is particularly important when choosing which lwa , pombia gira , Exu we work with we choose wisely not dabbling , spirits we know suit our own energies or that we could have a long fruitful relationship with for life.My devotional practice is based around Pombia Gira of the rags who choses to experience prositution ,poverty inorder to hold a deeper understanding of life , humanity in full .She is also like the hindu tantric who scarifaces all wealth for poverty dismentaling the human ego choosing to experience life in full darkness , light and Pombia Gira Caveria the spiritualist meduim of the dispossessed street people , the Gede of Quimbanda.In voodoo practice I have perement alters work with Maman Brigitte , Baron Kriminel , the Gede spiritualist street elements honoring the elemental aspects of sex creation , destruction death the dual poles of existance and petro Erzullie Danto who like Pombia Gira represents the female form in true married transexualised gender united form .These spirits besides the gateway opener of legba have been specifically chosen to fit my energies practice ,in knowlege that the connection is strong to such and I could sustain a connection to such. In practice we do such with pure heart and respect , not just as a fashion fad or whim , the spirits will work with the practitioners and although the path is rougher harsher than others born in FIRE through destruction of everything ,we can find rebirth and rewards that are unsurpassed . We can find through total surrender to such paths , that intensely require all , true enlightenment that is not to rewarded by tamer religious magical frameworks that require less or not full commitment.I have realised this from the start that such paths require life forming relationships with the spirits , unlike most although it was a conscious descion to dedicate my practice to certain spirits , I did not have a choice as a sensitive channeling such harsher more what others deem as dangerous spirits anarchic forces since birth. I did not search for anything and without choice naturally such things would communicate through dreams , my life and of course ART.Some people are made for rougher more uncompromising practices and to beable to feel connection to communicate such naturally , therefore the path of ALL was not to my own personal experience a conscious descion , the choice was made for me . This is why I do not have a problem submitting all to certain spirits or my practice because I know commitment to such is already there naturally , though I realise we must never enter such pacts flippantly because any gesture of calling big or small is a contract of the practitioner acknowledging that they will serve of work with that spirit not for a brief moment but for life.That all contracts with these enities require submission fully to them in being giving ALL.
